You can go to the county recorder's office; it can provide you with a listing of all liens attached to your property (just provide your nme or address). In some jurisdictions, the tax assessor's office offer this service as well. In most places now, you can get this info on-line as well. For  modest fee, you can also retain the services of a title insurance company to finding any liens.
